    Did you perhaps mean an arcane mage-killer?

    I think more of an anti-magic-mage-mage-killer, whose requirements can be fit by a warlock.

    20|20|12|6|6|Pain's Fury|47|From any List lvl <=5[/table]
    Hit die: d12
    Class Skills: Balance, Climb, Concentration, Intimidate, Jump, Knowledge(psionics), Survival, Swim
    Skills: 2+int
    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A psychic rager is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).

    Psionic Fury: So long as a psychic rager has power points remaining and is not fatigued, he can enter a psionic fury. The fury lasts 5+con mod rounds or until he goes 2 rounds without using psionics (either manifesting a power or continuing a power that was manifested previously). It is only during a fury that he can manifest psionic powers. During a fury, he cannot use any Charisma-, Dexterity-, or Intelligence-based skills (except for Balance, Escape Artist, Intimidate, and Ride), or any abilities that require patience or concentration, nor can he cast spells or manifest powers except those from this class, or activate magic items that require a command word, a spell trigger (such as a wand), or spell completion (such as a scroll) to function. At the end of his fury, a rager is fatigued for five minutes. Rager manifesting is charisma-based.

    Illiteracy(ex): as barbarian

    Uncanny Dodge(ex): as barbarian

    Improved Uncanny Dodge(ex): as barbarian

    Superior Quicken Power(ps): A rager can manifest a power he knows as a swift action for only 3 additional power points without needing psionic focus.

    Tireless Fury(ex): A rager is no longer fatigued after a fury.

    Overfury(su): Once per day, a rager in a fury may increase his anger to burning levels. His manifester lever increases by 2, and he gains a +2 morale bonus on attack and damage. However, he and anyone within 10 feet of him take 3d6 fire damage every round. The overfury lasts as long as the overall fury does.

    Pain's Fury(su): A rager at the peak of his powers can channel pain into useful anger. Whenever he takes 10 points of damage, he gains one power point. He cannot gain points above his usual maximum.

    Rager-Specific Powers:

    Simple Rage

    Chill, guys. This is volunteer-based, done in the free time that people have remaining from their free time for D&D which comes out of their free time they spend on everything else. If you really want an Ur-Mage/facehugger/whatever in your game it is entirely within your power to write such a thing and put it up for critique in a thread on the homebrew boards.

    People come here if they're bored and want to write something but don't have inspiration. Alien facehuggers and a run-of-the-mill warlock antimages don't interest me the way a dinosaur vestige or zombie knights do, so there's no impetus to write them up

    In the interest of things not getting dropped, here are the recent unfullfilled requests. And, on the off chance someone cares, why I haven't done any of them.

    Anyway, this would be similar to each when in is environment, but would change to go toa different one.
    This one I just don't have any good ideas for.

    Doesn't have to be undead if that doesn't fit the episode in question.

Getting it out of someone without killing them would be extremely difficult, and impossible after a while as the mist eats its host's soul or something. A possessed creature (called a "thrall") would count as "Undead" for most purposes, except maybe both positive and negative energy heal it. When not possessing a creature, it would be hard to pick apart from regular mist, but still not too difficult to avoid if one is wary (and not cornered or held down). Killing a host body would weaken it, but destroying it permanently would require divine magic damage or a special ceremonial weapon of some sort.

    I don't care too much about which system it's for, (would prefer 3.5 though) mainly I just want to see it done.
    I don't know DF.

    I just thought of a cool concept:
    A prestige class for warlocks that is basically an arcane ur-priest (ur-Mage)
    I would be very happy if someone made this class.
    Thanks in advance.
    This one I don't understand. In what way could an arcane class resemble ur-priest?

    HB 890
    Ognirr
    +2 Con, +2 Dex, -2 Int, -2 Cha
    Medium: Ognirr have no bonuses or penalties due to size.
    Normal Speed: Ognirr move at base speed of 30 feet.
    Plant Traits: A plant creature possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature's entry).
    •Low-light vision.
    •Immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, morale effects, patterns, and phantasms).
    •Immunity to paralysis, poison, polymorph, sleep effects, and stunning.
    •Proficient with its natural weapons only.
    •Not proficient with armor.
    •Plants breathe and eat, but do not sleep

    Thorn Shot (Ex): Ognirr have a natural unarmed ranged attack that deals 1d4 peircing damage, and is considered a thrown weapon with a range increment of 15 feet. This increases by 1d4 every 4th level.

    Natural attack: An Ognirr's natural attack does 2d4 points of bludgeoning and piercing damage. An Ogrinn gets 2 natural pummel attacks.

    Natrual Armor Bonus +2, his increases by +1 at every 5th level.

    Plant Rest (Ex): Ognirr resting in suitable earth with leaves exposed to the air gains fast healing 2. An Ognirr is awake during this time, as they do not sleep.

    Fire Suseptability (Ex): Ognirr take 1 extra point of damage per die from fire-based attacks.

    Plant Speech (Ex): Ognirr operate as though permanately under the effects of a speak with plants spell

    Poisonous Sap(Ex): An Ogirr's 'blood' is an ingested poison. Any creature that scores a bite attack on the Ognirr is treated as ingesting the poison, taking an initial 1d2 Constitution damage and 1d2 damage a minute later as secondary damage. The Fortitude save DC is 10 + the Ognirr's Constitution modifier + ˝ the Ognirr's HD.

    Ognirr are only proficient with their natural weapons and no armor, unlike most races an Ognirr must spend a feat to acuire proficieny with an armor, not just by taking a class.

    Favored Class: Druid

    Im leaving the lore up to you as its your world.

    I am designing a back-up PC for a campaign in the Faerun setting that is going to be a Shadowcaster/Swordsage focused on Shadow Hand/Mystery "gishing". Could someone please build a Shadow Hand/Shadowcaster PrC that utilizes both the crunch and fluff of both to exemplify the "Walker of the Dark Path" without an evil alignment?

    Throwing anti-mage out there. This is probably Tier +2, so some fat should be cut.

    H889

    Anti-Mage


    Prereq:
    • Magebane Blast
    • Arcane caster level 5
    • The ability to use detect magic as a spell or spell-like ability


    Saves: All good
    Hit dice: d6
    BAB: Poor
    Arcane caster level: +1 per class level

    1. Resilience: SR 6+HD

    2. Weave Render: You gain the weave render eldritch essence. Wherever an EB successfully lands, target must make concentration check (DC 15+antimagelvl+Cha+spell level) to cast spells for 1r/lvl

    3. More than Magic: All spell-like abilities are supernatural abilities. Among other things, this means that your invocations do not provoke attacks of opportunity (though they still require somatic components) and are not subject to spell resistance.

    4. Magedrain: You gain the magedrain eldritch essence. Wherever EB lands, targets within close range lose CL equal to ˝ lvl for 1 hour. Will Save reduces this to the weave render effect.

    5. Furious Resilience: SR improved to 10+HD

    6. Weave Drain: You gain the weave drain eldritch essence. Wherever EB lands, treat the target as the center of an antimagic field (1 round per level) effect and immobilize them (1 round). Will reduces the antimagic field to a magedrain effect, and a Fortitude removes the immobilization.

    7. Weave Breaker: DCs of spells and SLAs (and the to-hit bonus for touch attacks) are reduced by ˝ antimage level for targets within close range (friend or foe). You can suppress this as a swift action, but it can only be suppressed two rounds at a time. Opponents may make a spellcraft check (DC 17) to learn the exact effect (though they might figure it through other means). The world around you gets wavy, the way air looks on a hot day, and the area around you feels stifling, so enemies always know whether the aura is active or suppressed.

    8. Malicious Consumption: You gain the malicious consumption eldritch essence. For 1r after being hit by the blast, target must beat caster level check (DC 10 + 2xantimage level) to cast any spells or else they fail and are absorbed. You get spell for 1 round at the beginning of your turn, can cast it with normal cast time or full-round action (whichever is shorter), then lose it. If you use the spell, they lose whatever slot they had to cast it. If you don’t use it, they keep the slot.

    9. Total Defiance: All supernatural abilities become extraordinary. This is good, because your next level is...

    10. Antimagic Aura: You exude an antimagic field. You enlarge this as per the metamagic feat if you wish (this does not require the feat). You can suppress this as a swift action, but it can only be suppressed two rounds at a time. Opponents may make a spellcraft check (DC 17) to learn the exact effect (though they might figure it through other means). The world around you gets wavy, the way air looks on a hot day, and the area around you feels stifling, so enemies always know whether the aura is active or suppressed.

    Magebane Blast
    Lesser; 3rd; eldritch essence

    This changes your eldritch blast to a magebane blast. Any target hit by the attack must make a will save or be subject to the effects of a targeted greater dispel magic.

    You may also use a magebane blast to counterspell as per greater dispel magic, but you deal no damage with the magebane blast as a result.

Will reduces the antimagic field to a magedrain effect, and a Fortitude removes the immobilization. A bit too harsh isn't it? Makes the target a sitting duck.

    7. Weave Breaker: DCs of spells and SLAs (and the to-hit bonus for touch attacks) are reduced by ˝ antimage level for targets within close range (friend or foe). You can suppress this as a swift action, but it can only be suppressed two rounds at a time.

    9. Total Defiance: All supernatural abilities become extraordinary. This is good, because your next level is...

    10. Antimagic Aura: You exude an antimagic field. You enlarge this as per the metamagic feat if you wish (this does not require the feat). Maybe have an ability to break this anti magic field for a use of disjunction?

    Magebane Blast
    Lesser; 3rd; eldritch essence

    This changes your eldritch blast to a magebane blast. Any target hit by the attack must make a will save or be subject to the effects of a targeted greater dispel magic.

    You may also use a magebane blast to counterspell as per greater dispel magic, but you deal no damage with the magebane blast as a result.
    C889
    Specific comments in bold.

    Overall this is an awesome class, and why not make it a tier 1 with spellcasting advancment like the Ur-priest but with arcane spells?
    Just a small amount, nothing grandiose.
    Half the spell slots of a wizard without ability bonus spells that are not affected by magic items?
    Maybe some of the class feuteres will get cut to balance.

    A player of mine was asking to see if I could make a ToB class with a sneak attack progression, but I've found out I'm horrible at homebrewing. The gist is a Rogueish-ninja character, similar to the swordsage in a way, except less martial study focussed and more stealth oriented (so perhaps fewer potential maneuvers and stances). Thanks for your help!

    Responses:
    Weave Drain: Well, this follows in a similar line to phantasmal assailant. If they make the fortitude save, they're just going to move 10' (though they have to take more than a 5-foot step, so attacks of opportunity for the melee guy!). If they make the will save, they're immobilized and don't care because they can cast solid fog on you and make you cry. Thus, a target that makes either of the saves or dodges the eldritch blast will ignore the antimage-ness of the effect more or less completely. It should be fine as-is, but I've noticed there's no duration, so I'm making the antimagic field 1r/lvl and the immobilize 1r.

    Malicious Consumption: I figured there was some text for this somewhere like the spellthief, but I had a good idea and didn't want to lose it. Is this like a spellthief ability or something?

    Antimagic Aura Suppression: While the ability is supernatural or extraordinary, it is still an antimagic field, so mage's disjunction will affect it normally (1% chance per caster level)

    Hm, I could swear I had text in there for voluntarily suppressing your antimagic aura... I'll write it in now.

    Spell Progression: The Ur-Priest's casting progression isn't something I aspire to write. Like the blighter, the ur-priest is incredibly weak at low levels, becomes competitive past the point most people play to (~10-ish), and then quickly becomes broken before hitting the level cap. It's just not good design.

    I added the +1 arcane caster level progression because it improves the warlock's caster level and eldritch blast, but the entry requirements are so high (need lesser invocations--so warlock 6) that no spellcaster would actually take it.

    The rogue is actually weak compared to ToB classes, so if you're looking to make something on par with the warblade or a well-played swordsage, switch sneak attack to even levels and move accessed abilities from even levels to the one below them, and then give the rogue access to all maneuvers and stances from any one martial discipline (no recovery mechanic) and hand them Adaptive Style as a bonus feat at level 1.

    The problems that arise with this system are:
    • Evasion is now a 1-level dip, but it comes with a d6 hit die and only one good save, so I wouldn't be too worried.
    • Shadow Hand is kind of an awesome discipline, and assassin's stance stacks with rogue-granted sneak attack, so all Shadow Hand Rogues will end up strong as hell.


    Good things about it:
    • Easy to write, no need for a new class
    • You can pop custom disciplines in there
    • The rogue has no dead levels!
    • You can't dip out of rogue (like into swashbuckler with Daring Outlaw) if you want to keep the benefits coming

    Pathfinder prestige class for arcane magic users who specifically choose not to neglect their physical attributes and make them dumpstats like many do. Not something like the eldritch knight, who is simply good at fighting, but a mage who spends focus on their physical attributes to somehow help enhance their magic.

    Sort of an arcane caster+ "Do you even lift bro?"

    Lightbulb Silk-Skull Spiders

    R 895 - Silk-Skull Spiders - Psionic Undead

    Imagine a rough spider shaped creature crafted from humanoid bones, crystals, silk and drow hair, with long splintered leg bones bound with sinuous silk and hair for spider legs ending in razor-sharp points, covered in tiny white and silver strands. Their bodies are spider-like in form, but feature outward facing skulls, woven ribs and silvery hairs weaving it all together.

    Throughout the strands of hairs that tie its body together flows powerful psionic energy, the strands flow through its body as if it was spooled. They seem to flex like muscles and the hairs seem to be filled with static energy. The hairs are so sensitive to movement that the undead seems fully able to hunt invisible creatures down.

    Inside of the beasts body moves a single cluster of crystals, that appear to work like eyes, moving freely underneath the multitude of skulls. The crystal cluster seems to peer sinisterly out from behind numerous different skulls, turning this way and that to view all angles of the battlefield from within the twisting strands.

    These large undead spiders are dangerous, while not directly venomous, the Silk-Skull's bite or leg attacks carry a deadly curse. Using its long jagged fangs or spear-like legs that are wickedly sharp and filled with cursed marrow, the attacks inflict a terrible fever-like state that causes the victim to begin liquefying, collapsing into unconsciousness from pain before their flesh dissolves into a puddle. The Silk-Skull survives on draining the bloody juices from their liquefying victims, either through their legs or fangs.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Im wondering if someone could help me stat out a intelligent and psionic undead spider that drinks its cursed victims. Something tidy, cleans up after itself. im looking for a middle-high to high CR creature with web use, climbing and leaping. Psionic attacks meant to confuse or subdue long enough for them to reach them in melee, where curses and wounds mount. I got many ideas but i want to see what someone with a love for undead/drow/spider stuff.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    I want it to be something that is feared above all else. Imagine a trip to the hollows where they dwell as a capital punishment. The crime need not matter, for you got caught. You are taken deep underground and given nothing but a wooden shield and a simple light mace. In this webbed hollow, its like a maze. You are given the knowledge that you will be given the chance to escape to the surface, but only if you "play their game". You are given a last meal that knocks you out and you end up waking inside the hollow.

    You find yourself trapped with little means of protection and lost underground. you see the eyes of drow occasionally, from through slits scattered among the twisting passages and hear their muttered taunts and cruel laughter. You are watched as you fight for your life against numerous spiders, including these undead, which guard many of the more lethal areas of the massive maze. If you reach the end you are freed and honored, if you die, you are food. Some game.

    Imagine a Colosseum type game, where you are the entertainment and the blessing to the goddess, Dusk.

    For me having good physical stats means being willing an able to enter melee. You could simply use the Dragon Disciple PrC from core. As an alternative, how about the following:

    Slugger Sorcerer archetype:

    Bloodline bonus class skill: Acrobatics (Dex)
    This ability replaces the bloodline bonus class skill of your chosen bloodline.

    Bloodline arcana: Forceful Touch (Su)
    When personally delivering a spell that requires a touch attack, you can instead decide to make a regular attack that does no extra damage. You add your Strength modifier to the save DC of the spell. This increase cannot be higher than the level of the spell being cast.
    This ability replaces the bloodline arcana of your chosen bloodline.

    Bloodline powers:
    Reserves of Strength (Su): at 3rd level, you can tap into your physical reserve in order to enhance your spellcasting. As a swift action, you can increase your caster level for the next spell you cast by a value equal to your constitution modifier. This increase cannot exceed half your caster level. After you cast the spell (or discharge it, if a touch spell), you must make a fortitude save (DC 15 + the level of the spell being modified) or be dazed for 1 round. If you have immunity to the dazed condition, on a failed save you take 1d6 HP damage per caster level increase instead.

    Strength of the Beast (Ex): at 9th level, you gain a +2 inherent bonus to your Strength. This bonus increases to +4 at 13th level, and to +6 at 17th level.

    This abilities replaces the bloodline power of your chosen bloodline gained at 3rd and 9th level.

    Thoughts? I cannot vouch for balance I'm afraid, but it gives real mechanical advantages for high physical stats.

    Three Katana Fighter (Tkf) archetype

    Katana proficiency: Tkf gain the EWP (katana) as a bonus feat at first level. this lets them wield them with one hand.
    This replaces the standard bonus feat gained at 1st level.

    Way of the sword: At 2nd level, a Tkf gains a +1 bonus on CMD against sunder and disarm attempts when wielding katanas, as well as saving throws against spell and abilities targetting them. This bonus increase by +1 every 4 levels after the 2nd.
    This ability replaces bravery.

    Three katana style:
    At 3rd level, a Tkf can wield a katana in his teeth. It counts as an extra hand for feat prerequisites. If the Tkf already has the two weapon fighting feat, it is automatically converted into the multi weapon fighting feat.
    This replaces armor training 1.

    At 7th level, the penalties for multi weapon fighting using three katanas decrease by -1. At 15th, they decrease by an additional -1.
    This replaces armor training 2 and 4.

    At 11th level, a Tkf treats katanas as light weapons when fighting with three of them.
    This replaces armor training 3.

    Weapon training:As the standard fighter ability, except that it only applies to katanas. The bonus increase by +1 for every four levels after 5th.

    Weapon mastery: A Tkf must choose a katana for his weapon mastery ability.

    I failed my will save v. Wall of Text, so I'm not sure if I got everything you wanted, but your problem can be solved by "gestalting" two psionic creatures: A lolth-touched phthisic and an intellect devourer. Take the larger of the size, the higher of the ability scores, higher of BAB/saves/etc, combine the special qualities.

    To make it undead, recalculate HP based on d12's. The gestalt-beast should have HP 6d8+6(8)=72, so the undead version will have 11d12=71.

    sadly only one ability will actually work (blindsense) from those creatures, the rest isnt needed. lolth-touched template will work in part.

    Poison Damage: Phthisic Int-damage (which goes to drain), burn a feat and apply it to a natural weapon. Flavor losing Int as collapsing from pain, and total Int drain causing the target to melt (since the spider eats them anyways, I don't think melting is going to be anything except a definite kill condition)

    Eyes and Stuff: Covered by Blindsight.

    Climbing and Leaping: Hella strength, 9 ranks in jump/climb.

    Psionic attacks: Brain Lock and Id Insinuation.

    Scary-ass-killer: Cloud Mind, Dimension Slide, Mental Barrier, Intellect Fortress, Regeneration. It runs up to attack you when you can't detect it at all, and then wails on you and tries to eat your brain. During the fight, you need to beat it's DR 10/(Adamantine and Magic) and get through its Regeneration with fire. If in danger it will use its immediate action force field and teleport to run away, heal back up, and then come kill you again.

    Web Use: Lolth-touched.

    ... waaaaait, does lolth-touched grant web use? I don't actually remember. If not, you could trade several any number of PLAs away for it (ego whip, mental barrier, mind thrust, Body Adjustment, skate from phthisic; ego whip, painful strike, body adjustment, compression from intellect devourer).

    I think that covers all of it.

    I need a unique high CR, colossal, gaseous, air sub-type, incorporeal monster to be what will be known as the Black Wind. It's going to look kind of like this. If you're familiar with Wheel of Time, it should be somewhat similar to Machin Shin, but perhaps a little more manageable. It likes to either drain its victims of their souls or else drive them to insanity. This creature will haunt an extraplanar highway that was created by ancient predecessor races (a.k.a., The Ways). The players will have a very low chance of encountering this creature due to the size of the plane (1% per day or less), but when they finally do, it should scare the absolute piss out of them. It should be something powerful enough to have driven the predecessor races that constructed the highway to abandon it entirely.

    Here's the catch: The party will likely encounter this creature before they can hope to defeat it. There needs to be a mechanic by which they can escape from it and not get TPK'd, but not something that would make them feel totally safe from it. Simply giving a low base speed won't work because then the players could simply outrun it every time they encounter it, completely eliminating the fear factor. Doing this sort of has me stumped. If it also stumps you, but you want to take a crack at designing the monster, feel free to go ahead anyway.

    Perhaps if you staged an encounter with it eating a disposable NPC? But no, the PCs might foolishly stick around...

    Hm...

    Perhaps if its base speed was 40-60 feet, but it is unable to go any faster than that, the PCs could outrun it only by sprinting. Combine this with an ability to sneak up on the party somehow (perhaps floating under or behind cover) and the PCs will always be on edge if they even suspect one is nearby.

    • Change hit die to d8
    • Change all instances of "Charisma" in the Smite and Indomitable Soul abilities to "Constitution". Keep in mind that Indomitable Soul still doesn't stack with Divine Grace.
    • At level 10, instead of Die Hard, grant Medium Fortification.
